Childhood should be filled with playing, learning and growing. But for many children who face hunger, even basic staples like milk – and the nutrients that help power childhood activities – may be missing. Each year, more than 46 million people — including 12 million children — are served by Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
One in six kids in the U.S. faces hunger. This problem is further complicated in the summer months, when children don’t have the structure of school meals to provide them with the nourishment they need to grow. This summer, America’s dairy community is building on its commitment to nourishing people by joining forces with Feeding America and activating communities to help kids facing hunger.
When food banks have the money and resources they need, they’re better able to provide local families with the nutrition they need, including dairy. Milk is packed with essential nutrients kids need to grow, including protein, calcium, vitamin D and potassium. Now, you can help feed a childhood.
Join America’s dairy community and Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, to help deliver fresh milk and its high-quality protein to children and families in need.
